Not By Choice – The Way It Used To Be lyrics

Today's the day to Set the record straight
But there's a price you have to pay
Now you found out
What you really need
You don't know if you can stay
Don't want do it again
Don't want to listen to your friends
Don't want to do it again
No one really gives a damn
Now you know how the story goes
It's just a game but no one knows
Now you know how the story goes
You're always thinking of the way it used to be
Today's the day to
Give it back to them
But you don't want to play their games
Now you're jaded/As the days go by
You don't know if you can stay
